Famous rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been arrested after he allegedly drove over two men after a dispute in Compton. He is currently being held on $2 million bail.
Knight arrived at Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood with his lawyer at approximately 12:30 a.m. so that homicide detectives could question him
Apparently, the argument began at approximately 3 p.m. on Thursday when Suge Knight started arguing with two men on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” which is a biographical movie about the rap group N.W.A., the Sheriff’s Department stated.
Twenty minutes after the alleged dispute, it is believed that Knight followed the men and drove over them in the parking lot. Witnesses have claimed that the truck hit the two men and backed over them again before the driving away.
One victim died and the other suffered injuries, according to Capt. John Corina of the Sheriff’s Department.
